I'm running for Congress because Oklahomans deserve a champion, not “politics as usual.” Our communities deserve a representative who will fight for them, regardless of party. That’s exactly what I’ve done and what I will continue to do.

I know we can find common ground and solve the problems that face us, because I’ve done it. I’m proud that in my first term I have introduced and co-sponsored 23 bills that have been signed into law by the president. I’ve fought for Oklahoma families and small businesses, and successfully worked on critical bipartisan legislation like the USMCA trade agreement and the Tenants Bill of Rights for military families. I’ve hosted hundreds of meetings and dozens of public town halls and helped thousands of Oklahomans with Social Security, Medicare, veterans benefits, and more. I do all of this because Oklahomans deserve a congresswoman who fights with everything she’s got to tackle the big issues we face.
We need to invest in public education and in health care for Oklahomans.

Right now, Oklahoma ranks 45th in the nation for our state’s investments in public schools. I believe that quality public education for all children, regardless of zip code, is a right, not a privilege. and I will keep pushing to invest in our public schools and teachers.

Our state also needs to improve access to quality, affordable health care. Oklahoma ranks 46th in the nation for health outcomes and second to last in the country for cardiovascular deaths. Investing in our healthcare system and changing those numbers won’t just save lives, it will help our economy and our whole community.

In Congress, I’m fighting to make a difference on these issues. I’m proud of the progress I’ve been able to make during my first term by working together with lawmakers from both parties. I’ve passed record funding for Head Start and introduced legislation to address the sky-high cost of prescription drugs.
My experience, and my record in Congress show that I walk the walk when it comes to fighting for our public schools, affordable health care, and Oklahoma’s workers and families. I’ve written legislation to invest in our teachers, I’ve fought to lower drug costs for Oklahomans and expand access to affordable, quality health care, and I've been a supporter of Medicaid expansion in our state. I stand up to my party in Congress, and I do what’s right for Oklahoma. I always put people over politics, and I’ll always follow through on my promises.

I'm also proud to have been recognized as one of the most accessible freshman Members of Congress. During my first term, I hosted a record number of town halls for Oklahoma's 5th District. Showing up for our state and listening to voters is an important part of the job, and I'll never stop fighting to make Oklahomans' voices heard in Congress.
